I am a Film historian and Writer. I am a vegetarian and work solely with Digital methods of film-making, which understandably contradicts the ideas of film. However, I dare to suggest, that the concept of film is no longer defined by the constraints of it's visual recording method. Film is Cinema, and Cinema is an art that comprises much more than the film-stock. Mise-en-scene, Editing, Sound, and Cinematography are Cinema, and this will never change. The way each of these areas evolve is arbitrary, in comparison to the inevitability that they will evolve in different ways over the next thousand years, and throughout that entire process, people will be using these four concepts (Mise-en-scene, Editing, Sound and Cinematography) to tell stories in new and innovative ways, while at the same time being bound by the discoveries of the medium in the twentieth century.
